Professional Development


The Student Affairs professional development committee looks to bring colleagues across the division together to enhance relationships, grow professional skills, and develop a deeper understanding of important issues within the field of Student Affairs and the Boston College community. Through opportunities such as the Lunch and Learn Series, Experts Among Us, the Journey Series, and social functions, the committee hopes to bring positive and intentional professional development to the Division of Student Affairs.  

As we gear up for the 2018 - 2019 academic year we are looking for new members to join our committee! If you're interested in serving on the divisional professional development committee contact Nekesa Straker at
